And Before Ya Know It....

So... some good news for Terri... 
She has moved and is now in a much safer neighborhood and away from her crack dealing, former next door neighbor. She is now sleeping through the night and without the light on. She is getting better sleep and looks a lot healthier than when she was going through the time of taking care of Lou. She now is cooking again and the entire family is happy about that!! Our waistlines will once again expand because of her cooking. I couldn't be happier. I talked with her this week and she told me that for the first time in a very long time, she doesn't feel overwhelming pressure trying to drown her. I was joking around with her and in the past it was always me trying to make her laugh. This time it was her showing her sense of humor and looking like she finally, yes finally, was going to find a way to enjoy life. She still misses Lou tremendously... heck, we all do... But now that Lou is no longer suffering and is in Heaven enjoying paradise, Terri is now starting to spread her wings and is now starting to grow... to reach out of her comfort zone and do things she hasn't done before. I love hearing the joy in her voice again. God is good....
